Tasting notes

Sherry and boiled sweets with hints of fruit, caramel, vanilla and liquorice – a huge nose with strong aromas. The palate is very warming and very alcoholic with sweet caramel flavours and a mouth-coating texture. Water makes it very easy to drink. The long finish hangs around the front of the mouth. Beautiful aromas and flavours with lots of alcoholic warmth. (The Oak Barrel).

Distillery

Sullivans Cove

Australia’s most awarded distillery and one of the country’s modern whisky distilling pioneers, Sullivans Cove has achieved great success in recent years, including international recognition when their French Oak Single Cask was crowned World’s Best Single Malt in 2014 by the World Whiskies Awards. As if that were not enough their American Oak Single Cask was awarded World’s Best Single Cask Single Malt at the World Whiskies awards in 2018.

All this, alongside exemplary ratings from Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, including the first Australian whisky to achieve “Liquid Gold” status, has propelled Sullivans Cove into the global spotlight, but with limited stock and a long maturation period, their whiskies are highly sought after and very hard to find.
